St. Andrews, Scotland (Sports Network) - Morgan Pressel opened with a 6-under 66 on Thursday to grab a share of the lead after one round of the Women's British Open.

Pressel, the 2007 Kraft Nabisco winner, was joined atop the leaderboard by Camilla Lennarth, who is making her first LPGA Tour start. The duo tops a crowded leaderboard on the Old Course at St. Andrews.

Stacy Lewis and Na Yeon Choi, the second and fourth ranked players in the world, share third place at minus-5. They were joined there by 2009 U.S. Women's Open winner Eun-Hee Ji, Nicole Castrale, Mi Jeong Jeon, Sydnee Michaels and Ryann O'Toole.

Paula Creamer, who finished third last year at Hoylake, and 2009 champion Catriona Matthew carded 4-under 68s. They stand alongside Pernilla Lindberg, Dori Carter, Liz Young, Danielle Kang, Lizette Salas and amateur Georgia Hall in 10th place.

World No. 1 Inbee Park is looking to become the first golfer, male or female, to win the season's first four majors. She carded a 3-under 69 and is tied for 18th with 19 other golfers.
